Abstract

Paleofavosites cf. collatatus Klaamann occurs abundantly in marls and bioherms of the Muksha Member of the Bagovitsa Formation (Upper Silurian, Ludlow). The morphological variation of this species identified in different localities is analysed. The biometrical data show that there is no substantial variation among specimens from different localities except that corallum shapes are taller in marls than in bioherms and corallites are slightly smaller in specimens from bioherms. The irregular growth of coralla is common to this area.

Keywords

Silurian, Ludlow, Podolia, Tabulata, morphological variation.
